Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2010, $10,270)

The Edward Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance Grant Program (JAG) allows states and units of local government, including tribes, to support a broad range of activities to prevent and control crime based on their own state and local needs and conditions. Grant funds can be used for state and local initiatives, technical assistance, training, personnel, equipment, supplies, contractual support, and information systems for criminal justice, including for any one or more of the following purpose areas: 1) law enforcement programs; 2) prosecution and court programs; 3) prevention and education programs; 4) corrections and community corrections programs; 5) drug treatment and enforcement programs; 6) planning, evaluation, and technology improvement programs; and 7) crime victim and witness programs (other than compensation).

The disparate jurisdictions consisting of the city of Wagoner and Wagoner County will use their JAG award in the amount of $10,270 to purchase a digital video system for the Wagoner Police Department, while the Wagoner County Sheriff's Office will purchase digital cameras and flashlights. The video system will aid the Wagoner Police Department in their evidence collection. The digital cameras will be used to record evidence, while the flashlights are necessary equipment for sheriff's deputies in the field. Wagoner County will serve as the fiscal agent for this award.
